Nawaz Sharif is reportedly leaving for Saudi Arabia on Saturday for a high-level meeting with Saudi officials.

According to Express News, Nawaz is departing for Saudi Arabia on December 30, while Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif is already present in the country. It is also reported that Minister of Railways Khawaja Saad Rafique may also depart for the kingdom.

Conspiracy being hatched against democracy, government: Maryam Nawaz

Sources say Nawaz's Saudi visit is political and may also be the reason why Saudi officials sent a private plane for Shehbaz. CM reached Saudi on Tuesday and met with multiple officials including Turkish prime minister Binali Yildrim.

Due to Nawaz's travel schedule, the PML-N jalsa which was to be held in Sargodha on Wednesday was also cancelled until further notice.
